Do you know how to use the function that will restores the computer to factory settings? If not, let us know as someone could help you with that. Doing that is how you would go about reformatting and it should take care of the viruses but you could also try using the Windows feature of System Restore first. That would take you computer back to a previously saved point on your computer so that you don't lose your programs and such. You can find that at...
Then choose "Restore my computer to an earlier date" select a date before you got the virus, click next and let it restore your computer. The virus could prevent you from doing that though but it is worth a try.
If you do restore the computer back to factory setting, you will need to reinstall those programs so make sure you back up the file you downloaded to install them and have your license keys to them.
If you cannot back up those program install files it is possible that you can redownload them as long you have the product code, or license key, for when you install them, especially if you have your order number from when you purchased them. Most places will let you redownload them with proof of purchase.
